Video Part 2: Highlights from our 9/15/12 Séance…

It is finally time to reveal the highlights of our two and a half hour September 15, 2012  séance. I’d like to thank Marilyn Painter at Ahtah Sanctuary Holistic Center in St. Peters, Missouri for sharing her time and talents with us for this project. 

If you haven’t been following along, here is some of the previously shared information. Marilyn beautifully announced our intention that evening with the following words.

 ”We set our intention tonight to bring forth those from the past who have an interest in bringing forth evidence to this physical world that spirit exists – that we as human beings, divine human beings are able to make connections and to communicate with those in spirit. Our intention tonight is also to bring forth, without a shadow of a doubt, evidence and proof that we are divine beings of light.”

Our invited spirit pioneers included Sarah Estep, Thomas Alva Edison, Helen Duncan, Konstantin Raudive, and Eileen Garrett. 


Some details regarding the “experiment” part of our séance…

Throughout the two and a half hour séance, I documented changes in EMF (electromagnetic field) and temperature. Also, along with recording the evening with multiple video cameras, I had two digital audio recorders in the room. My intention was to hopefully capture some EVP (electronic voice phenomena) as well. 

It is important to note that there were absolutely no EMF readings during the séance. I spent a lot of time charting temperature changes in the room and it seemed to rise and fall predictably and gradually as the air conditioning in the room turned on and off. I do not feel like any of the temperature changes were out of the ordinary or “paranormal”.  And, although I have a few artifacts of what could possibly be spirit voices captured on audio, I am not comfortable with making any claims about them or sharing them with the public. At least not now. 


Here is the Part 1 video…

…with an introduction and information on how we prepared for the evening. This was shared previously.



And here is Part 2…

I welcome your thoughts and comments. Please enjoy!


If you enjoyed following this séance, stay tuned for information on the séance we had on Saturday, September 29, 2012. 





Video Part 1: Communicating with Great Pioneers through Séance…

Have you been curious as to how our first séance went? Are you tired of me dropping hints while I’ve been watching footage and listening to audio for the last several weeks? Well I finally have Part 1 of our evening up and ready to check out. This video covers the introduction and preparation. Part 2 will contain highlights of the actual séance. I would love to have been able to post it here as well, but I’m still working on it. I hope to post it later this week.

Séance… My Next Journey?

First of all, I’ve gained quite a few readers and a few new followers this week. Thank you for checking out my blog and joining in The Big Séance!

The Next Journey

I’ve really enjoyed all of my EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) research and chronicling it through the blog. I hope you don’t get the impression that I’m closing up shop on EVP. My journey of reaching out and listening for spirit voices will definitely continue. I mean come on, I’ve got hours and hours of investigation audio from last weekend to go through still. I’ve also got ONE sleep recording that I’ve gradually been listening to for several weeks now and who knows how long it’ll take to finish that one. And, lately I’ve continued to conduct a general EVP session here at home every couple of days. It is one of these sessions where I captured my latest EVP that I shared with you a few days ago. Once you capture spirit voices communicating, you’re hooked for good. Plus, with all of the knocking during recordings lately, I’m still trying to figure out if I’m supposed to be a knock whisperer or something. 

But… I’ve always been very interested in a form of spirit communication known as the “séance”, which means “to sit” in French (I happen to be a fan of sitting). And since it is in the name of this blog I guess it shouldn’t be a big surprise to you. But aside from other forms of spirit communication which are actually very similar, such as EVP research and paranormal investigation, I’ve actually never participated in one.  I’ve brought it up a few times recently, and a few readers have expressed interest in starting a regular séance or “spirit circle” group also. I’m seriously considering getting something started soon and documenting the experience through the blog. 

I’ve read a ton on the topic of spirit communication, séance, channeling, etc., and recently I described to you the atmosphere of a séance and how I see it in my brain. I think I would get more out of it if my séance looked and felt like it would have in the early days of spiritualism. It just seems more fun to me. But really, I want this to be about learning and experiencing.

I know that I have readers from many backgrounds as well as some incredibly spiritual people with many talents checking out the blog, so here’s what I’d like to know from you…

  • What does a séance look like to you?
  • Tell me about the atmosphere…
  • Is having a medium a requirement? (I love my medium friends)
  • What should its purpose be?
  • How often should a group meet?
  • Where should it be held?
  • Some traditional views of the séance involve only a particular kind of “sitter” being present. Who should the participants be?
  • What should the rules and routines of our séance be?
  • How should it be documented?
  • Some other questions: Table or no table? Is holding hands or touching fingers necessary? Is it bad to light 50 candles (because you know I want to)?
